Today I downloaded Kaspersky Internet Security to see how good is it than the previous version. So, I downloaded it and started installation and I selected "Express Install" after that a window appeared telling that KIS install cannot go further because of this "Mcafee Internet Security with Siteadvisor 2008".

But actually Mcafee Internet Security is not installed. Kaspersky wrongly identifies Siteadvisor as Internet Security and do not install KIS on your system. So I uninstalled Siteadvisor because I was more curious about new KIS features. After uninstalling Siteadvisor I again tried to install KIS but it again shows you the same old story...

If you are facing this problem (like me) you have to follow these steps in order to install kaspersky.
Step1 : Uninstall Siteadvisor.
Step2 : Download Ccleaner and install it. After installing run Ccleaner to clean Registry errors and junk files.
Step3 : Select "RUN" from start menu and type in "regedit".
Step4 : Now go here "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\SiteAdvisor" and delete siteadvisor Entry (Right click on it to delete).

Now the installation of Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 goes smoothly without any problem. After KIS is installed reboot your machine and you can install Siteadvisor.
Click here (Firefox , IE) to download latest Siteadvisor.
